chasing and repousse

Here are a few samples of Chasing and Repousse I have done. I hope you find them intriguing enough to want to come to this months meeting in Virginia


Image #1, The deer was chased and repoussed in sterling silver sheet; working in the flat, and then bent round to a bracelet. 3.25 x 2.25''

Image #2, The Rams Head Drinking vessel started out as a flat sheet of sterling and was hand raised to cup form. Then the ram's features were hammered out using a snaring iron and chasing tools. 7 x 3 ''

Image #3, This shell shaped pendant is chased and repoussed in the flat and then embellished with electroformed copper stripes and surface set with white sapphires. 1.75 x2 ''
